An excellent Nick Ray film. Because of Nick's inspired direction this is the best Western film ever made; besting The Naked Spur, Pursued and Rancho Notorious. Joan Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge give compelling performances of naked ambition as these two give an unparalleled film noir depiction of hate, lust and ambition. A must see, must own to all lover's of excellent script a gripping story.

In all its lurid, colorful glory; and finally the full 110 minute version with every seething ,over-the-top acting performance. This would make a wonderful double bill with "The Violent Men", a Glenn Ford/Barbara Stanwyck/Edward G. Robinson romp. Then again, by itself this movie is more than enough. Great cast here with Crawford, McCambridge, Hayden, Borgnine, Brady, Carradine and Royal Dano, among others. Nicholas Ray still had Rebel Without A Cause, Bitter Victory and Bigger Than Life to come, surely one of the 50s' top directors.

Whenever I lecture before general audiences or film students and explain what elements comprise the essential grammar of cinema (the lighting, performances, editing, costumes, art direction, script, music, photography, etc), I ALWAYS use the opening 15 minutes of Johnny Guitar. Nothing, aside from Rebel Without a Cause, made the following year by the same director (Nicholas Ray), better communicates these features more palpably -- and interestingly -- than this film. Yet despite these virtues, the film is hardly known in its native country. Although it was initially a popular hit in the US, the critics didn't take to it (its feminist theme and gender bending were decades ahead of their time) and so it eventually fell away from consciousness and distribution. In contrast, however, the French instantly recognized its achievement, followed by the British. In Europe then, and later in parts of Asia, the film attained a very devoted following, but to this day the average American is likely to shake his head and say "Johnny what?" Time to rectify this injustice.

A unique western where two women are the centre of the movie, possibly Emma hates Vienna because she is in love with her and Vienna doesn't love her even if Emma apparently is in love with The Dancin' Kid who is Vienna's lover. Two powerful women who remind me of Barbara Stanwyck's characters in Forty Guns and The Furies. In addition this indoor western is visually and stilistically outstanding. Great movie. Five stars for me.

I watched it just to see Sterling Hayden. Ok, Joan a bit too since I've been reading about her for years. Pretty corny, but some interesting side characters.Read more
